windmills Estonian stamp featuring one of the Angla windmills

The Angla windmills, a group of 4 post mills and one smock mock, are very much a symbol of Estonia. Eesti Post is issuing a stamp featuring one of the post mills. Although only one of the mills is shown on the stamp, face value 5.50 kroon (0.35 euro), the first day cover shows the full set of 5 mills.

This stamp joins an ongoing series of stamps produced by Eesti Post that feature Estonian mills. Last year's issue was the tower mill at Polma, and the first in the series was the watermill at Hellenurme issued in 2007.
